The Hologram Bible

The world of God on a beam of Light by Frank DeFreitas

Not just a 3D image of the Bible, but the entire KJV Bible stored in a hologram the size of a snowflake, Frank DeFreitas

We recieved this link from Frank today with the background of the work with the Hologram Bible and are happy to share it with you. Frank will later send a video which is fantastic and unique, I´ve seen it before. One of the best of holography,,,


”To bring Scripture to areas of the world where the Christian Holy Bible is banned.” 

The Hologram Bible is shown hidden under a postage stamp in this experimental test.

ABOUT The DeFreitas Hologram Bible — INTRODUCTION —

As of May 2012, an entirely new way of experiencing the Holy Bible has taken place in a humble row home in a small Pennsylvania town. This Bible is unlike ANY other Bible before it, which is a rather bold statement, but true. You are not likely to read about it in popular magazines, nor see it on national news. Its world-wide propagation is truly in the hands of a much Higher Authority, and this single web page.

Q1. Is it really a Bible?
Yes. This Bible is a real Bible stored as a real laser HOLOGRAM. The Bible hologram contains all 1,245 individual pages, and 773,746 words of the King James Bible. It is the size of an average snowflake. It is not an electronic chip, nor does it contain any electronic information. It is not a computer file. Nor is it a big image that is made really small through reduction. Holographic information is stored onto a special laser sensitive photopolymer emulsion. As a laser hologram, it is one of the smallest, and most scientifically and technologically advanced REAL Bibles in the world today (2012).

Q2. What is a hologram?
Holography is a Nobel prize-winning field of physics. It allows objects to be recorded in true 3-dimensional fidelity called holograms. It is also used in various technical applications, such as data storage and non-destructive testing. The Hologram Bible project shows that vast amounts of information can be stored in a very small space when stored holographically.

Q3. What else is true about The Hologram Bible?
It is amazing to note that every word of the Bible is contained within a single laser beam, all at the same time. To the eye, there is nothing on the hologram film at all.

Another interesting fact is that the image of the Bible is not located in the same ”space” as the hologram. The Bible itself floats out in space, at a specific angle and distance away from the physical holographic film. The geometry, laser orientation and distance measurement data are known only to myself.

DID YOU KNOW? . . . The Hologram Bible is recorded onto a material known as photopolymer. Photopolymer is what I would call a transformational material: once it experiences light, changes take place within, and it is transformed into something new. Before it comes into the light, it is vulnerable to outside forces and thus is unstable. After it receives the light, it becomes stable, and is no longer vulnerable to outside forces. Therefore, it is transformed into what it was initially created to be, and ultimately reaches its full potential, through its presence within the light.

Q4. What is the Bible made of?
Although the hologram itself is physical (holographic photopolymer film), the Bible, scripture or images that it contains exists as only pure laser light. The information is stored so densely, that the Bible glows when held in the light at certain angles. This is known as diffraction.

Q5. How does one read The Hologram Bible?
In order to ”see” The Hologram Bible, a laser, optics, and a vibration isolation system are needed. Remember: the actual Bible itself is not in the same space as the physical hologram. If you were here in the lab you would see what I mean with your own eyes, which would make it much easier to understand. Let’s see if this helps (see next paragraph):

The holographic reconstruction of the Bible is not located in the same physical space as the hologram film. The Bible is actually several inches away from the physical piece of holographic film. The optical system, along with a laser beam, reconstructs the Bible out in space. It is this reconstructed laser holographic image — not the physical hologram — that must be projected / enlarged / etc. to view.

With individual Scripture text (shown above) and image holograms (see ”head of Christ” below), a laboratory microscope is not needed. All that is required is a simple laser pointer. Why? Because the enlarging optics are encoded directly into the hologram (since the hologram can record 3-dimensional objects/space, it is possible to also record the 3-dimensional optics that would be needed to enlarge the image). These holograms can be camouflaged within the design elements of such common items as greeting and birthday cards. This is an analog form of laser holographic steganography. They cannot be detected by the unaided human eye, but when you touch the right area with a laser beam (a laser pointer will do), Scripture and/or Bible-based images are holographically ‘projected’ onto any wall, ceiling or screen in a darkened room. Their size can be as small as the diameter of a human hair. They very well may be the smallest images ever recorded in the world today.

Q6. What is the history of The Hologram Bible?
Miniature Bibles date back to the 19th century. The history of The Hologram Bible dates back to 1964 and the New York World’s Fair. Many futuristic technologies were introduced to the public at this two-year event. The NCR pavillion provided visitors with a glimpse into the future of information storage and retreval, and how vast amounts of information can be stored in very small spaces. The subject that NCR decided to use for a public demonstration of their new technology was none other than what was then known as the world’s smallest Bible. At the time (1964) it was the most scientifically / technologically advanced Bible in the world.

Q7. Was this the Bible that went to the Moon on Apollo?
Yes. The NCR microform Bible was the Bible that went to the moon with the Apollo astronauts. About 500 of the NCR microform Bible’s landed on the moon’s surface. There are many modern-day copies of this Bible available today in 2012, but only a finite number of originals from the days of Apollo.

Laser Micro Holography / Steganography

DID YOU KNOW? . . . As we begin to meet groups of people concerning this project, it has become very clear that the main focus has been on how ”small” the Hologram Bible is. This is understandable, since it is the most readily understood aspect. However, it would be a mistake to think of the hologram Bible as just another ”really small” Bible. Its size is just the beginning of what makes it different from every other Bible in the world today. The greater interest should be in the holographic aspect itself: that every Word of God is located at every point in space, and all at the same time. Unlike the NCR Bible of NASA / Apollo, or even your printed or electronic Bibles at home, the ”Words” of the Hologram Bible are not physical in their existence. And they are not ”localized” to a given place, such as a location on a page (electronic or otherwise). The Words in the Hologram Bible do not physically exist, in the physical sense that we know it. They exist as pure light only. They are not ”on” the hologram, they float in free space. You can pass your hand through the light that contains every Word of God. You can project this light into a darkened room, and have the room itself lit with every Word of God. This is truly the most important aspect of the Hologram Bible project. It has never been possible to do this before, and the people who see it are the first in the world. Ever.

— Laser Micro Holography / Steganography–
This stealth technology can also encode microscopic
images within the hologram. Only a simple laser
pointer is needed to see the pictures. This image
is the size of a single human hair, self-magnified
and projected onto a wall.

Q8. How advanced is The Hologram Bible?
The Hologram Bible is many, many times smaller than the NCR microform Bible of the 1964 New York World’s Fair (the world’s smallest Bible, previous to 1964, was from the 1933 World’s Fair in Chicago). There are other technologically advanced Bibles today: some that are *smaller* contain only the Old *or* New Testaments, while others contain *both* the Old and New Testaments, but are *larger* in size. Techniques range from nano-etching, to vapor deposition, etc. I propose that in utilizing the Nobel prize-winning method of laser holography, the Hologram Bible is one of the smallest, and most scientifically and technologically advanced Bibles in the world today (2012) . . . and that it will remain so for many years to come. Therefore, I have given it the official title of ”The Greatest Hologram on Earth”.

Hologram Kunglig angelägenhet

Drottning Margarethe i Danmark blev holograferad 1990. Prins Bertil i Sverige holograferades redan 1982.

Prins Bertil, hologramporträtt (reflexionshologram på glasplåt 30×40 cm) med ett djup på ca 20 cm, där ögonfransar sticker ut och man kan se såväl vänster som höger sida av Prins Bertil men även andra detaljer. Fototekniken här ger inte en rättvis bild av hologrammet.

Drottning Margarethe, foliehologram som HoloMedia tog fram i samband med drottningens 50 årsdag åt Se og Hör, Danmark apr-maj1990.

500.000 självhäftande foliehologram fick vi som agent åt De La Rue Holographics leverera till omslaget på Se og Hör som därmed var en av de första i världen att använda holografitekniken för ett kungligt budskap, drottning Margarethes 50-årsdag.

Hologram Monarken och professor Dennis Gabor på högra bilden uppfann holografitekniken redan 1948 och fick 1971 Nobelpriset för upptäckten. Här ses han med den surrealistiska konstnären Salvador Dali, en av hans vänner som förstod sig på ovanliga visioner.

Early Art Holograms

Swedish Artist´s – Early Art Holograms av professor Hans I. Bjelkhagen för SPIE Professional July 2014.

Inte bara Salvador Dali upptäckte tidigt holografi som en ny konstform, internationellt erkända konstprofessorn Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd hade redan på 1960-talet experimenterat med LASER i samarbete med SAVEN AB, grundare Per-Ove Stopp.

1972 började Carl Fredrik Reuterswärds långvariga samarbete med forskare på KTH, Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan Stockholm och det fortsatte hos Lasergruppen Holovision AB. Carl Fredrik såg inte HOLOGRAFINS begränsningar utan tänjde på gränserna för att förverkliga sin konstnärliga ide. Ett bra exempel är Smoke without Fire or Gateaux Gabor.

När HoloMedia AB fick uppdraget av Svenska Dagbladet 1986 att ta fram ett hologram på deras bilaga Årtusendets Tidning Följ med in i framtiden var det en stor ära att få med Carl Fredrik i projektet. Vi träffades på somrarna i Torekov och jag minns att han var mycket positiv när han svarade: jag har en ide´, ska be min modellbyggare i Italien att ta fram en modell. Ingen kunde ana vilken fantastisk symbol som kom från Italien för att holograferas av Lorence Holden, dåvarande API Holographics, England. Den så kallade mastern har vi i säkert förvar och kan återanvändas för att producera Non Violence foliehologram – självhäftande eller för värmefoliering. Carl Fredriks egna ord vid framtagning av hologrammet:

Det är utomordentligt viktigt och intressant att kunna para ihop en humanitär angelägenhet, ett fredsbudskap, med en teknisk landvinning.

Läs mer om Carl Fredrik som hologram pionjär http://hologram.se/non-violence-carl-fredrik-reutersward-2/


Non Violence hologram 1986  Svenska Dagbladet var den första tidningen i världen att förse omslaget med ett hologram, ca 320.000 självhäftande som applicerades av ICA Förlaget i Västerås. Och enbart det, var ett pionärsprojekt.

Gösta Ekman, Prins Bertil, Marilyn Monroe Hologram


Så här skrev Jonas Månsson i samband med en hologramutställning på Ekerö Kulturhus. Porträttet av vår kära och beundrade skådespelare Gösta Ekman, alias Charles Ingvar Jönsson i filmen Jönssonligan, väckte både skratt och igenkännanden – det där har jag sett på hologramutställningen på Drottninggatan. 

Kända nunor i hologramformat

Kända porträtt med hjälp av prisad teknik. Det visas just nu på Ekerö. – Det blir vintagehologram, säger Mona Forsberg, som ligger bakom utställningen.

Uppskattat. Skärvikbon Marianne Westh besökte biblioteket i Ekerö centrum och passade då på att titta på utställningen Synvillor. Hon gillade vad hon såg. Foto: Jonas Månsson

1971 tilldelades ungraren Dennis Gabor Nobelpriset i fysik för upptäckten av holografi. Tekniken innebär att laserstrålar som reflekteras mot ett fotografiskt material skapar en tredimensionell bild. Fram till den 7 mars visas tekniken i utställningen Synvillor på Galleri Utkiken i Ekerö centrum.

– Det är som fototeknik utan kamera, säger Mona Forsberg, ägare av HoloMedia som har gjort utställningen.

Besökarna kan se Gösta Ekmans rollfigur Sickan från Jönssonligan. Hologrammet var det 16:e som gjordes i världen. Dessutom finns avbildningar av Prins Bertil, Mona Lisa och Marilyn Monroe.

– Sverige har varit i framkant när det gäller hologram och gjorde några av de första i världen, säger Mona Forsberg.

Faktum är att de flesta har hologram med sig i vardagen. Tekniken används för säkerhet.

– Det finns på var mans egendom, på kontokort, pengar och ID-handlingar. Det finns även på VHS-kassetter för att det inte ska gå att kopiera dem, säger hon.

Mona Forsberg hade hoppats på större utrymme för att göra porträtten rättvisa. Nu har de en lite grön ton över sig.

– Det beror på att det är två till tre hologram per lampa. Egentligen vill man ha en stråle per hologram. Nu sitter lampan en bit bort och det ger inte maximalt ljus.

Termen används felaktigt

Begreppet hologram är något som ofta kan användas felaktigt, menar Mona Forsberg. det är en skillnad mot videoprojicering. Sådant används exempelvis när klassiska konserter återges med avlidna artister.

– När man ser Michael Jackson uppträda är det en videoprojicerad tvådimensionell film som uppfattas tredimensionell, men bara är tvådimensionellt. I ett hologram kan man se runt ett hörn, så som det är i verkligheten, säger hon.

Hologramporträttet av Gösta Ekman har väckt samma förundran och aha-upplevelse som när det först visades i samband med premiären av filmen Jönssonligan klicka här för mer information http://hologram.se/gosta-ekman-is-dead-hologram-portrait-sickan/

Enligt överenskommelse med Jonas Månsson Mälarö Tidning, lägger vi ut artikeln här för dom som missade hologramutställningen i Galleri Utkiken Ekerö Kulturhus.

Holography A Brief Introduction

Hologram: From the Greek words ”holos”, meaning ”whole”, and ”gram”, meaning ”messige”.

Holography – A Brief Introduction, copywrite AH Prismatic Ltd, founder Barc Thompson. A pioneer company established in Brighton England 1982 whom HoloMedia AB & Hologram Museum/Gallery represented in Sweden for many years as a retailer and whole seller of holographic gifts and hologram pictures, new at the Scandinavian market.

Watch out there is a trap at internet! 75 % of hologram at internet is not hologram – NO LASER, NO HOLOGRAM!
